I almost want the Conservatives to try and put an extra tax on iPods, because it would signal the end of their parliamentary session. Whenever a Liberal or Conservative government in the last years has made a move to change our Copyright Act, the government has been suspended or fallen. It’s probably not only a coincidence.
People don’t like paying taxes, and we already pay a levy on blank recordable CDs. There’s been talk, even from the traditionally progressive politician/musician in the NDP, Charley Angus, of putting a levy on iPods and other MP3 players, which are more often used to listen to downloaded music than CDs are these days.
Join the facebook group to help stop the Conservatives and Liberals who want to make you pay more for MP3 players, and to be subject to RIAA/CIRA lawsuits, as Americans are under the DMCA.
